The Trump administration is touting a court victory on the border wall Thursday morning after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled $3.6 billion in military dollars can be transferred to fund its construction.

"A U.S. federal appeals court on Wednesday put on hold a lower court ruling that blocked President Donald Trump’s administration from using $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build a wall on the country’s border with Mexico," Reuters reports. "The New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay pending the Trump administration’s appeal of a Dec. 10 decision by a federal judge that barred the funding transfer."

President Trump took to Twitter to celebrate the decision. 

"The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has lifted an illegitimate nationwide injunction entered by a lower court, and in doing so has allowed vital border wall construction to move forward using military construction funds. This is a victory for the rule of law. We are committed to keeping our borders secure, and we will finish the wall," White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham added in a statement.
